Oak Creek police received prostitution complaints in two separate incidents over the weekend near the truck stops on Ryan Road.
An employee at the Value Inn, 9420 S. 20th St., said several customers came into the office Friday about 9 p.m. to report a woman knocking on doors and soliciting them. The woman left before officers arrived.
Two days later, a Love's Travel Stop employee called police about 9:45 p.m. with a similar report - that a woman was knocking on semi-truck doors "offering services" to drivers in the lot.
A 40-year-old woman from Ohio was cited in the incident.
Love's, 9650 S. 20th St., is across the street from the Value Inn near the Ryan Road off-ramp.
Police Chief John Edwards said it's not rare for the police department to get calls about solicitation at truck stops.
"The reason being that it's a transient area with a lot of people in and out," he said. "It’s a fairly common thing and it goes with the seasons - in the summer time, we get a lot more complaints."
Edwards added that the number of prostitution-type calls have dwindled over the years, which he said is probably due to the Internet and the number of escort services.
